John Poulos


Hello There!

My name's John, and I'm an actor. I discovered my passion for performance at a very young age. Truth be told, I took to hamming it up for an audience far more than I ever took to studying for an exam. My parents were smart and kind enough to see my desire and nurture it, enrolling me in a high school with a stellar arts program. Between playing the piano for our Jazz Band and performing on stage in several theatrical productions, I was quickly sold on a life in the theater. The Drama Program at Syracuse University provided me with a sincere appreciation for the art, its methods, and a foundation to continue to build upon as I pursued my dream in the real world.

I spent the next decade or so living between Chicago & Los Angeles, all the while performing and furthering my education. While in Chicago, I studied at The Second City, graduating their Improv and Musical Improv Conservatories in 2012. On the heels of graduation, I took my first official gig with them on board the Norwegian Star. It was there that I met my future wife. We moved back to Los Angeles once we got back on dry land, and have lived everyday since, in the pursuit.
